Have you been searching for the perfect foundation,powder and concealer?
In the world of beauty and cosmetics,the choices seem endless.
I've been working in the cosmetic industry over 5 years,and have been obsessed with makeup for many years beyond that!
I've had the opportunity to try hundreds of different foundations,concealers and powders throughout the years.
It seems to me as there is no one "perfect" product,it takes lots of trial and error to discover what works best for your skin tone and type.
Many products are aimed at a specific skin type; (I.E.Normal,Dry,Combo,Oily)
and certain ingredients work better for those targeted groups.
Skin care is of the most utmost importance in achieving flawless skin.
Regardless of the makeup and coverage,you need to prep the skin completely to get a smooth finish.
For Drier skin,one should apply a hydrating serum.
For Oily Skin,one should apply a mattifying primer to resist oil production.
Everyone gets darkness and puffiness under the eyes,so using an eye cream with caffeine and optical diffusers will help to brighten,deflect darkness,and reduce bags.
Here are some of my personal favorite products i've tried on myself and countless clients,which will be broken down by category.
